My first (and last) television commercial

Wanna see something silly?

Prior to my move, I worked for a small television station in the Silicon Valley.

I am a girl who doesn't get into pictures, I've never enjoyed seeing myself after the fact. Not photographs or videos..nothing. It makes me VERY uncomfortable.

Working where I did only made my anxiety worse. We always needed publicity type shots for advertising, etc...so escaping the eye was getting harder and harder.

Our Production department had made a commercial for a fitness place and the client didn't like the "Mom" image that they had filmed. The executive director approached me and asked if I'd like to do the part. I knew I was leaving, oh heck, why NOT. I have no idea where that bravery came from.

So here's the link, it won't be hard to spot, albeit brief (thanking my lucky stars!). You'll need to download Flash if you don't have it and come back and push the play button. You'll need a little sound too...and remember this was made to get the teenagers attention, lol.

You're so cute! (and I'm SO not surprised, btw) And what a GREAT idea for a gym. We need one of those, will you come star in our commercial too?

Terrific commercial!!!! I'm leaving in about 30 mins. for SF. I'm sooooo bummed that you are not in the area anymore. Must check the AZ map for how close we will be coming in Oct. on our way home from the NW. Hugs, B

I saw you! I don't know why you don't like having your picture made. Looked perfectly normal to me. :-) I mean I didn't see 2 heads or horns or pointy ears, or anything odd at all. :-P
